of the senate, well, ted cruise is jim demint 2.30 or 3 had the 0. we saw in the hearing with secretary clinton, we saw in the confirmation hearings with chuck hagel that cruise was by far the most prosecutorial, the most aggressive of the questioners of both of those folks, and he is someone who makes no bones about his -- both his ambition and his willingness to buck how the senate is supposed to work. we're going to hear more from him before we hear less. >> you know, the way the senate is supposed to work is that you don't ask a question about the friends of hamas until you check out whether there is even such an organization as the friends of hamas. just saying. margaret, could marco rubio and the foreign trip. he has credentials and has given foreign policy speeches. here he was with king abdullah. he was in israel and had a press conference there, met with netanyahu. he is really -- there he is with shimon peres. there is quite a lot of activity by marco rubio, even since the state of the union water episode. >> well, he has now checked his foreign policy box. you'll remember these are n

. but what i can say is when i was offered this job by secretary clinton, the office had lost a competence of key players on capitol hill and others in the u.s. government. so i just produce a chance to start over anything probably a lot of what we are doing with the original conception. and i'm trying not to throw out the baby with the bathwater. probably nobody has said that since her grandmother died. so my feeling is they think the original intent was to be strategic and to have a policy influence. and then i think when it went through its middle stages a coordinator and never gain traction in the state department. so it then went into a kind of supplier of people, which i thought was too limited. so we've tried to recapture that want to be part of the conversation. we've been very fortunate to have the support for secretary clinton for the first year of our existing and now what we are finding that only been in a handful of meetings with secretary kerry, but in every one of the meanings, he has said, or bring the ideas. give me some out-of-the-box thinking. we've got to find another w

and influential senator, a republican icon who voted to impeach president clinton over the lewinsky scandal. >> mr. domenici, guilty. >> he says truthfulness is the first pillar of a good character. >> i think there's an element of hypocrisy, no question. >> reporter: matt cooper says that now because we're finding out while domenici was blasting bill clinton, he was hiding from everyone, including his own family, that he fathered a child out of wedlock several years early and with the daughter of another republican legend, former republican senator paul laxalt. pete domenici has said that he's aware of this for several months. my past action has caused hurt and disappointment to my wife, children, family, and others. i deeply regret this and am very sorry for my behavior. >> what do you make about the revelation and the timing so many years later? >> it seems like someone forced their hands. someone was going to write about it. so they thought they would come out and be forthright about it. >> indeed, michelle laxalt says, recently information has come to me that this sacred situation might be tw
for bill clinton. so, we will start with the president. benghazi. campaign stuff. gentleman, what do you say? >> it is not campaign stuff. that was four months ago. we are in february and repeatedly learning more things because of the confirmation hearings. the republicans are doing a good job forcing the white house to answer more questions. although we have a lot more to learn. >> i was surprised and struck by the president's statement about benghazi. i know he wants to move forward. >> that was a stunning statement. i have never quite seen something like that, it reminds me of nixon and watergate. something is going on, when john mccain used the word "coverup" woodward was on with chris wallace and he said a lot of these are legitimate questions. we don't one knows from the evacuees interviewed by the f.b.i., we don't know what the president was doing. there are four dead americans and what is happening, it is getting more and more the case that this is developing --. >> why would he even go from, doug? >> he raised the issue. >> here is what he is trying to do. he is trying
that referenced hillary clinton that said it was unfit for her to the commander in chief. it was only banning a movie that would be available on pay- per-view cable. an adult cannot watch something in the privacy of their own home on pay-per-view because mccain-feingold banned it. do you really want to ban movies? the answer is perhaps yes, which is why i did not want to reverse citizens united. the second issue that came out of the decision is that all new avenues of disclosure -- i am not sure where this comes from, the reality is the court has upheld some disclosure, has struck other disclosure. if mccain-feingold were upheld in the mcconnell case, and what they want was a one-page disclosure regime for television and radio ads and movies that air on television, run within a well-defined proximity to federal election that referenced a candidate. this does not give license to all sorts of other expensive disclosure machines or calls to limit the reach of disclosure. the court struck disclosure in the davis case, in which most had written off on millionaires' kids, but if you read the langua
submitted by hillary clinton. third, dealing with the types of oils that is being studied. the scientists have also studied it. it is not a thought. there is science based on those three factors. >> absolutely. the pipeline being proposed has got to be the most studied pipeline ever proposed on the planet. i do not know if there is a valve at every hinge, but there are extra measures that they took on board because of the concerns raised on nebraska and other places. they have gone out of their way to ensure that a modern, high- tech pipeline with lots of extra features would be the state this possible way to get the oil to its destination. >> i do not want to prolong the argument about the myths and non=myths,, but back to the oil. let's say it was successful in not being exported somewhere else. there would still be hundreds of barrels coming from someplace else. it is important to realize that the amount of oil that will be consumed would be the same. that oil has its own risk associated with it. tankers are notoriously risky for bringing oil. i think we have to look at this on balance
from leon panetta and from david petraeus at ci and from hillary clinton at state to do something. >> so what happened, i believe, and i did a lot of reporting on it. and actually it was an article that i worked on with mark rangler that was the basis of the question that elicited secretary panetta's response. in iraq training the troops was looking for a way in syria. he wanted not only to influence the situation on the ground now but assuming assad is deposed, the thought was it would be beneficial from the united states had some stronger relationships with the fighting groups of groups inside syria. the people actually in control the ground. then secretary of state hillary clinton supported that argument. so did leon panetta and general dempsey. that was brought to th whitehouse before the election not a political climb to do something controversial like that but it would have been a limited operation in the sense they weren't going to provide what they call man pads, air defense weapons because they didn't want to risk them falling into the wrong hands and endangering israeli
do. >> rose: secretary of state clinton, who you worked with, panetta petraeus, all recommended we do something. and the president said no, and you say the president was right to say no and other people can asthis qestion: how many syans ve t die before the west does something? >> well, i think this has to constantly be reexamined. as i understand it, the president is looking at things again. trying to figure out -- i talk about something called-- i made this up-- the doability doctrine. >> rose: right. >> can we really make a difference? and i know some people have compared it to the we did something military in libya with nato. very different kind of situation because the libyan army basically didn't exit. the question is whether there's value in creating a nfly zone. etr it would really do something useful. whether -- the questions i would ask is whether the assad military regime has been weakened so that in fact there can be a functional no-fly zone. the other question i would ask is how many arms are needed there? as i understand it, there have been a provision of arms by other c
of that will conversation as well, and clinton won the pennsylvania primary. guns are part of a culture in new york, in new hampshire, in maine where the nra is going after susan collins in part of their advertising. it's a hard vote for members of congress. >> thank you very much. thanks to the washington post and roy montgomery and kneea malika. thank you very much. >> joining me now is maryland congressman chris van holland, the ranking member on the house budget committee and a member of the democratic steering committee that is going to hold a hearing this afternoon "hearing" on sequestration. thanks for being with us. >> it's good to be where you. >> you're not in the majority. you can't schedule a hearing. this is kind of a forum. is that a fair characterization? >> that's right, andrea. yeah. we wish that our republican colleagues would hold an official hearing to understand the terrible consequences of the sequester. it's the biggest consequence being that according to the nonpartisan congressional budget office we will lose 750,000 american jobs, in addition to all the other disrupgs at airports
skism exposed in recent weeks where leon panetta confirmed that he and hillary clinton and others and the chairman of the joint chiefs were at some point in favor of arming the rebels more to the point that the white house disagreed. what -- where do you think we can go forward now? we're approaching the second anniversary in syria. 70,000 reported dead. and the fear that if you arm the rebels that gets into the wrong hands because of the increasing al qaeda and radical and iranian influence within syria so what does a new secretary of state do? >> andrea, i do think that the secretary of state kerry is right to try to go back at this problem and see if the united states can piece together a stronger alliance of countries to help the syrian resistance inside syria because that's all we've got to go on right now. assad will not stay in power forever, but he happens to be strong enough to hold on to power for the foreseeable future, for many months to come. secretary kerry has a tall task ahead of him. the united states government is going to have to ask themselves, and i'm sure the
in 36 hours and hillary clinton said his days are numbered. he has an ability to hold on and iran is supporting him . cemeteried by russia. they are supporting him and he has a long way to go. >> the u.s. has not intervened in syria as why did in libya. what is the difference here? >> you have the russians protecting syria in the united nations .... and second of all, you are learning now after the third or fourth time. the devil we know and what israel is looking at is it better thant devil we don't know. syrian rebels have ties to al qaeda. you think about what libya had in terms of womans. that is tonka toyce in tef of the syria with the defense . get to iranians in termless of tankings and armored personnel carriers. the stakings are much higher and united states and staud saud backing off and you know, we may not want to stee how it terms out and let them fight amongst themselves before the rebels are going to win. >> you covered the hot spots. you are right there on the front line. you ever get scared doing this stuff? >> being scared is what keeping you alive and you hope y
clinton and general david petraeus and leon panetta. i don't see a great appetite right now to reverse that rejection. >> and, wolf, how does the administration counter from iran as well as russia that they are completely willing to supply arms to the rebels here? and you have at the same time an american public here who looks at the tragedy in syria, says, okay, you have to do something here but there is no appetite, very little appetite among american people to get involved in another armed conflict. >> you make a good point. the iranians are assisting bashar al assad's regime, revolutionary guard forces equipment, military hardware, stuff like that, hezbollah is from lebanon is as well. the russians are continuing to sell military equipment to the syrian regime of president bashar al assad. the weapons are coming in and clearly bolstering him. this is a brutal, brutal battle under way right now. and at least as of now, i see no end in sight. one of the problems that the president has had in terms of arming the rebels directly providing military equipment to the rebels is the u.s. an
in the east room of the white house. each of us on either side of president clinton as he announced the once unthinkable normalization of our relations with vietnam, and efforts that john mccain and i worked on for about 10 years. to try to. in the last decade, thanks in large part to the work of usaid, our exports to vietnam increased by more than 700%. every one of those percentage points our jobs here in america. in the last two decades, 1000 vietnamese students and scholars have studied spanish and taught in america through the fulbright program, including the foreign minister of,who i just talked to the other day and who has feelings about america because of that engagement. the list goes on. as the emerging middle class in india, the world's largest democracy, buys our products, that means jobs and incomes for our own middle-class. as our traditional assistance to brazil and decreases, trade there is increasing. brazil is one of the new tigris moment at a double-digit pace. it supports additional jobs here at home, many in the u.s. travel and tourism industry. when jefferson expanded o
